THE TOOTH FAIRY IS BACK!

The Tooth Fairy is back in business ladies and gentlemen!

Baby Girl’s first tooth is out!

We have no idea where it is…but it’s out!

Sigh!

It’s been loose for a week and a half and she’s been waiting very impatiently for it to fall out so that she could get her money from the Tooth Fairy.

Every day I’ve asked her…”So how’s the tooth?” and every day it was still there, hanging on. We’d stare anxiously into the sink every morning and evening as she brushed her teeth, just to make sure it didn’t accidentally fall down the drain.

Her sister reminded her to be careful when she ate.

No luck.

But today, after school I asked her “So is that tooth still hanging on?” and she said “No!” and showed me a big gap! But she had no idea where it went.

Seriously???

Her two little friends thought it was hilarious, they think it fell out when she was eating watermelon this afternoon. Her teacher was mortified because no one said anything to her about it and she fears that Baby Girl may have swallowed it. I was just disappointed because it was her very first one to fall out. Would you believe the Diva almost burst into tears when she found out her baby sister couldn’t find her tooth? I was quite impressed by the emotion. I kind of thought she would have just rolled her eyes!

Baby Girl was just worried that she wouldn’t get any money!

Of course, I assured her that the Tooth Fairy wouldn’t leave her hanging like that. We took a picture of the gap and posted a note on Facebook, because…why wouldn’t the Tooth Fairy have a FB account???

But being me, and as organized and together as I always am (stop laughing); I’m up at 3am, because I suddenly remembered that someone forgot to leave the note and money under Baby Girl’s pillow!

Okay fine! That someone is me…I mean the Tooth Fairy…you know what I mean!

By the way, can anyone loan me some money?

Anyone???

ABOUT THAT TOOTH…

So just to keep you guys updated on how the whole Tooth Fairy episode turned out…

The next morning Baby girl and I went into Diva girl’s room while she was still asleep. It was time to wake up and so Baby Girl jumped on her as usual and kissed her face while I tickled her. Still in her morning grumpy state, I reminded her that the Tooth Fairy should have left something for her during the night. Wiping the sleep from her eyes, she lifted the pillow to find a small Ziploc bag with a typed note and $5 (yes, Daddy gave me $5 to put under her pillow….yah we’ll talk about that later). I helped her read her note with barely contained excitement because I’m so mushy, I get into that kind of stuff (really never thought I would…see what kids do to you???). My darling daughter looked at me, the note then the money and in her sophisticated 5 year old self said to me…

“So did the Tooth Fairy really have to take my tooth?”

Sigh…

THE TOOTH IS OUT!

Yes, the tooth is out! Diva girl has lost her first tooth at the age of 5 and her adult tooth is already making a strong appearance. Geez, that girl moves fast! It was pretty much hanging by a thread last night and she was afraid she would swallow it. Luckily it stayed in place overnight, because as much as I love my daughter I was not going to extract that thing from anything coming out the other end the following day…and you know what I mean! She was so excited, I decided to write the teacher a note and put a little Ziploc bag in her backpack to save it if it fell out at school.

That’s exactly what happened! Did I call that or what? She was eating her pita and she spit it out thinking it was “a dry piece of cheese” (Hello? Like I would give her dried up cheese???) . She didn’t even notice it was her tooth until she started feeling for it with her tongue. Don’t you remember doing that as a kid when your baby teeth were falling out? You tried to push it as far as you could. It became your favourite pastime until the tooth finally fell out. Anyway, her teacher put it in the bag for her so she could bring it home. After bath time she put it under her pillow and she is now fast asleep waiting for the Tooth Fairy. She didn’t even want to lie on the pillow because she thought she would crush it and then the Tooth Fairy wouldn’t find it. She did this thing where her head was on her hands and her bum was in the air until I explained (without laughing…almost) that the Tooth Fairy could get under the pillow and find her tooth no matter what.

I love this stuff!

Well, she will be very excited when she wakes up tomorrow. A nice chunk of change and a note from the Tooth Fairy will make her Friday. My mother made sure to tell me that a quarter just won’t cut it these days. What the heck? This is only tooth number one! I’m gonna need a 2nd job after they’re all out. Oh well, that’s life.
